Buffalo Bills Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (wrist) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game vs. the Giants. He was limited in practice all week. We'll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning. If Knox plays -- and TE Dalton Kincaid (concussion) is out -- Knox would be in the TE1 discussion with Buffalo sporting a big 29.75-point implied total.

Bills TE Dalton Kincaid (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game vs. the Giants. He remained limited in practice all week, so he still has multiple stages of the concussion protocol to clear. We're not expecting Kincaid to play on Sunday but will continue to track his progress.

Bills TEs Dalton Kincaid (concussion) and Dawson Knox (wrist) got in limited practices on Wednesday. That gives both guys a shot to play vs. the Giants on Sunday night. We'll track their progress over the next few days.

Bills TE Dawson Knox came away from Week 5 with a wrist injury, HC Sean McDermott told reporters Monday. He said they'll see how Knox fares in practice this week. Buffalo could be down to its third TE for Week 6, as Dalton Kincaid's dealing with a concussion. We'll track both players through the practice week.

Bills HC Sean McDermott revealed Monday that TE Dalton Kincaid is in the concussion protocol. That bodes ill for his chances of playing Sunday against the Giants. We'll see about the team's plan at TE, where Dawson Knox is also dealing with an injury. Missing both would leave more targets available for the WRs and RB James Cook.

Bills LB Matt Milano suffered a leg fracture and is feared to have also suffered a season-ending knee injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Milano left Sunday morning's loss to the Jaguars early after hurting his right leg, and it sounds like he could be in for a rough recovery. We'll watch for more on his return timeline, but you should expect to lose Milano from your IDP roster for the rest of the season.

Bills RB James Cook hauled 3 of 4 targets for 25 receiving yards in Week 5’s loss vs. the Jaguars. He was unfortunately not as effective as a runner, totaling -4 yards on 5 carries. His teammate Damien Harris didn't do much better, leading all Bills RBs with 13 yards on 3 carries. The Jaguars’ defense entered Week 5 as the sixth-toughest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs in 2023 and did a tremendous job of stopping runners again this week. We expect Cook and company to have a much better time in Week 6 vs. the Giants.

Bills QB Josh Allen completed 27 of 40 attempts for 359 passing yards with 2 TDs and 1 INT in Week 5’s loss vs. the Jaguars. He also added 14 yards and a TD as a rusher in the contest. Allen helped to orchestrate a comeback late in the game with back-to-back 75-yard scoring drives, though the Bills came up just shy of the victory in London. Still, fantasy managers are happy with the production Allen provided. He’ll be a high-end QB1 again next week against the Giants in Week 6.

Bills LB Matt Milano left with a knee injury in the first half against the Jaguars. The team quickly ruled him out for the game. That doesn't bode well for Milano's outlook, and it's not shocking given how much help Milano needed getting off the field. We'll watch for more on his return timeline.

Bills Edge Greg Rousseau (foot) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. We've knocked him out of the Week 5 DL rankings. It's tough to know the impact on others' playing time. Buffalo lists Edge Von Miller as questionable, but he has said that he expects to play for the first time this year. Miller returned to practice this week after spending the first four weeks on the PUP list while working back from his December ACL tear. We're betting on limited playing time for Miller in his return, making him a high-risk IDP option. A.J. Epenesa has played 45-46% of the defensive snaps in three straight games and could see a slight boost. Leonard Floyd is the best bet for playing time on the outside but has topped out at 54% through four games. The Bills like to rotate their linemen to keep the group fresh. Shaq Lawon's in the mix as well but has delivered minimal stats on solid playing time so far.

Per The Athletic's Dianna Russini, the Bears are trading WR Chase Claypool and a 2025 seventh-round pick to the Dolphins in exchange for a 2025 sixth-round pick. Claypool's tenure in Chicago was short-lived, as he only appeared in 10 games after being acquired from the Steelers prior to the trade deadline last year. On Wednesday, Bears GM Ryan Poles shared in a radio interview that trading for Claypool last season "didn’t work out and we were hoping for him to be a little bit more productive," signaling that a potential move was on the horizon after marking the wideout inactive for two straight games. From a fantasy perspective, moving to the Dolphins at least keeps Claypool somewhat on the radar. He'll have a hard time finding relevance ahead of his new teammates Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, but it's never a bad thing to move to one of the NFL's highest-scoring offenses. Still, he's only worth stashing in very deep leagues for now. Most 10 or 12-team league managers shouldn't take action.

Bills Edge Greg Rousseau has missed the first two practices this week with a foot injury. That makes him look pretty iffy for Sunday morning's game against the Jaguars. We'll watch for his Friday participation and weekend outlook. The Buffalo D-line might get Edge Von Miller back. He is reportedly traveling with the team to London, though it's not yet clear if he'll play. Miller is coming off an early December ACL tear, so he shouldn't be in your IDP lineup even if active. But his status will be interesting to watch. We'd bet on the Bills easing him back in to make sure he's ready for December and the playoffs.

Bills HC Sean McDermott has said Edge Von Miller will begin practicing this week. Miller opened the year on the PUP list after tearing his right ACL late last season. We'll see how soon the veteran is ready for game action, and we'd bet on the team limiting Miller's snaps early on. But it's obviously a positive that he's set to practice as soon as he's eligible to do so.

Bears HC Matt Eberflus said Monday that WR Chase Claypool won't be with the team this week. He was a healthy scratch for the Week 4 loss to Denver. Claypool and the Bears seem headed for a split. We'll see if it's via release or trade, but he's not worth hanging on to in redraft fantasy leagues.

After just 7 total targets and 5 receptions over the previous two games, Commanders WR Curtis Samuel tallied 7 receptions for 51 yards on 8 targets in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. Samuel added a 1-yard TD on his only carry of the game. The combo obviously made for a nice fantasy line, but Washington's elevated passing volume and condensed target distribution helped. Sam Howell attempted 41 passes -- despite taking 5 sacks -- and only threw more than 3 targets to Samuel, Jahan Dotson (9), and Terry McLaurin (10). Samuel has now drawn a target on just 14.3% of Howell's attempts for the season. He's not a lineup option for most leagues, despite an upside matchup with Chicago in Week 5.

Bills RB James Cook scored his first TD of the season in Sunday’s win over Miami. He saw three goal line opportunities and covered one from one yard out. It’s a positive development for Cook, who entered with only three goal line carries on the season. He’ll remain a near must-start for Sunday’s home matchup with Jacksonville.

Bills QB Josh Allen went off on the Dolphins, tallying 320 yards and 4 TDs. He added 17 yards and a score on the ground. Allen leaned on Stefon Diggs, who exploded for 6-120-3 against a Fins defense that supplied little resistance. Allen’s now hit 25+ fantasy points in three straight. He’ll remain an elite option Sunday vs. Jacksonville.

Bears WR Chase Claypool will be a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Broncos, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Claypool had to apologize to his coaches and teammates for lack of effort in the season opener and then told the media this week that he's not being put in the best position to succeed. We'll see where the situation goes, but Claypool is off the redraft radar for now. WR Equanimeous St. Brown is expected to be active in Claypool's place today, according to Rapoport. Chicago is also replacing Nathan Peterman with Tyson Bagent as backup QB.

Bills RB James Cook led the backfield with 15 carries and 98 yards in Week 3. He garnered only 3 targets on a day that saw Stefon Diggs dominate (37.5% target share). Cook also watched as Josh Allen and Latavius Murray tallied short-range rushing scores. It’s clear by now that the second-year back won’t carry a high TD ceiling. But his efficiency and overall touch volume suggest he can remain a strong RB2+. He draws the Dolphins at home in Week 4.

Commanders WR Curtis Samuel (illness) has been removed from the Week 3 injury report. He'll play vs. the Bills tomorrow. Samuel has caught all eight of his targets for 73 scoreless yards through two games, adding another 19 yards on two carries.
